Luzzu: Cinema under the stars
Join Flimkien għal Ambjent Aħjar for an evening of cinema under the stars on September 20th!
Celebrate the end of summer together with Flimkien għal Ambjent Aħjar (FAA), under the stars in the beautiful, lush gardens of Villa Bologna while sipping a glass of wine and watching the Maltese film of international acclaim "Luzzu" – a film by Alex Camilleri.
Multi award-winning 'Luzzu' (2021) features Jesmark, a Maltese fisherman, played by real-life fisher Jesmark Scicluna. Upon facing challenges that threaten his family, Jesmark risks everything to provide for his wife and newborn son by entering Malta’s black-market fishing industry.
"Luzzu" was the first Maltese film to be presented at the Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Special Jury Award for Acting. According to The New York Times, "Luzzu", “Captures something special – not one man’s crisis, but a community’s culture.” But not only:
“An unaffected triumph with a simmering power... a stirringly nuanced and dazzlingly shot humanistic drama.” – Los Angeles Times.
“A moving tale of real-world strife... part observational drama, part social thriller.” – The Hollywood Reporter
“A ravishing portrait of tradition in transition, Luzzu brings Malta to the forefront.” – RogerEbert.com
"Discovers a knockout performance in a real-life fisherman from Malta.” – Indiewire
So, prepare your blankets, bring along your beach chairs, and relax on the grass. Any viewers who require seating are encouraged to contact FAA to reserve their place.
The evening will kick off with an introduction to the film by one of the producers, and a Q&A session with the actors will follow at the end.
A food stall will be available selling snacks, wine and non-alcoholic drinks.
In case of bad weather the screening will be held under the marquee.
Children under 10 enter for free.
Language: Maltese with English subtitles
